Club West One Four, West Kensington, London
Just wanted to say thank you to *everyone*
involved with the momentous
occasion that was DamoFest:
The FMH team; J-P, Dave, Joe, Simon, Katie and Claire without whom... The Sticky Sweet posse (Damo for non-stop energy and RAWK! Jason & Trudi; complete respect, Pynky Emma, Stuntwoman Sue, Ila & Batesy, Saz and Rab) for the stunning backdrop, rock, tees, pseudo-pyros, flyering, minidiscing, videoing *so* much effort and continual hugs, Trace for taking the pain out of the interview and just being truly fab, all the other members of the video team, Darren for the excellent press release and promo in the run up! Eight fantastic bands and their crew who gave their time and energy for the event and the charities; much respect to the Cheesemakers, the Cherrykicks, Psycho A Go-Go, Inhale, Johnny Zhivago, B-Movie Heroes, Plan A and of course Sticky Sweet! The mighty Tun for so much help with ticketing and advice (you da man!) The W14 team (Huw for crystal sound throughout, Karl our friendly security, Michaela for ticketing and D for the venue and the beer!) TotalRock for the interview and Century 23 for the flyers, Members of Rat:Daddy, Loose Thread, AntiProduct, The Egos, DrugdealerCheerleader, The Candyheads, Anti-Clockwise and of course Ginger himself for coming along for the ride! And last but NOT least - cliched as it is, I wanted to say a *big* thank you to everyone who bought a ticket. You guys made the difference!
In years to come there will be thousands of people claiming to have been at the first DamoFest.
We were the lucky ones.
